Jack Black - Jack Black's Roger Moore Influence

Jack Black admits he could have ''subconsciously'' based his acting career on Roger Moore.

The 'School of Rock' actor and former James Bond star Roger are both famed for quizzically raising their eyebrows during scenes in their movies, and Jack admits he could have been unknowingly drawing influence from the elder star.

He said: ''I could have been influenced subconsciously because one of my first movie going experiences was [James Bond film starring Roger] 'The Spy Who Loved Me'. Maybe I pulled my whole persona from Roger Moore.

''Although no-one picks him as their favourite Bond, his stock is now rising.''

Jack, 42, has also admitted he likes to impersonate Jack Nicholson, particularly his character Jack Torrance from classic horror movie 'The Shining'.

Jack said: ''I love the old Jack Nicholson movies. He is such a good actor. I like The Shining because that is the one I end up imitating when I am alone.''
